Read about Yohanna Flores’ story and learn how you can find strength even in the darkest of times.
When I first heard, "your test results came back for invasive ductal carcinoma" I felt my life was slipping out of my hands and losing control of it. As the nurse continued to explain my next steps, all I could think of was, "I'm going to die."
I didn't know much about breast cancer so when I heard "invasive" I thought it was already spread all over my body. No one wants to hear the word cancer and what I have learned from this and other survivors is that cancer isn't a death sentence.
It's not an easy journey. Cancer affects the patient and their loved ones. It takes a toll on you in every aspect possible emotional, physical, and mentally. For anyone who is going through cancer, remember if God brings you to it, he will bring you through it. Have faith! & fight! The will to survive will shine brighter than the storm!
As individuals, it's our responsibility to be aware and proactive of our health. Early detection saves lives! Check for any symptoms, changes, and abnormalities. If you know things don't feel right, see a doctor or ask for a second opinion. Cancer can happen at any age, it does not discriminate. I hope that by sharing my journey, it helps create more awareness and knowledge about breast cancer which can affect both men and women.
